Zaludu me svitovala mati

Zaludu me svitovala mati
Kad sam tija poć na more
Sve šta uzme nikada ne vrati
Niti jude, nit' vapore
 
Zaludu me svitovala
I zaludu plače
Jer su jidra puna vitra
Jer je more jače
 
Zaludu me zagrlila cura
Pustiti me nije tila
Al ča more, odnit će me bura
Bez vesala i kormila
 
Zaludu me zagrlila
I zaludu plače
Jer san sidro diga s dna
Jer je more jače
 
Zaludu je govorija ćaća
To je kruh sa sedan kora
Puno posla, a nikakva plaća
Nek ne iđe ko ne mora
 
Zaludu je govorija
I zaludu plače
Otplovit ću noćas i ja
Jer je more jače

In Vain My Mother Advised Me

In vain my mother advised me
When I wanted to sail the sea
It never gives back the things it takes
Neither the people, nor the ships
 
In vain she advised me
And in vain she cries
Because the sails are full of wind
Because the sea is stronger
 
In vain my darling embraced me
She wouldn't let me go
But what can she do, the bora will take me away
Without the paddles and a helm
 
She held me in vain
And in vain she cries
Because I pulled the anchor off the seabed
Cause the sea is stronger
 
In vain my dad said
It is a hardship
Lot of work, no pay
He who can choose shouldn't go
 
He talked in vain
And he cries in vain
I will sail away tonight
Because the sea is stronger
 
Thanks!
